The idea is awesome. Wayback machine has proven to be really handy when you need to check historical websites. Or just for nostalgia.

I mainly use archive.org it for downloading music from small weblabels which it is full of! But it is actually really messy, I can undestand why amateurs stay away from it as just finding the right link to click to to find the release can be a chore. It would be a lifesaver if the uploader could just choose one main link instead of a confusing list. Also the search does not allow Scandic letters.

But it's a free service that has extended beyond its original uses so one can't complain too much. I've found a lot of interesting music through it!

Been using this free service for a few years. Nhl.com still has not created a service where you could watch the highlights of matches without getting spoiled by the results popping all over the place. I used to use papers, dvd-boxes, everything that was available to block strategical places of my computer screen, yet still seeing one or two results half of the time.

Luckily Don't Tell Me The Score came to the rescue!

Handy for buying music and to feel good for support artists. However I do not like the way they add taxes on top of the actual price as you only see the taxes after you've already decided to make the purchase. Works this way in Finland at least. Mostly a good service and does have plenty of free downloads and demo bands too.

Not handy at all to buy from Europe. There are tons of products that are US / North America only. The option to only show products that have a shipping to Europe or free shipping does not work properly. A lot of products with no shipping option are still shown. And sometimes the shipping costs outrageously, there should be a proper way to limit to only show shipping for under x amount.

Amazon.com also looks like it's been designed in 2001, with buttons all over the place making the site really messy.

Free, but you can also pay to get extra stats etc. Great thing is that it is not a pay to win game, you just get interesting extra stuff and helping hands. Most of them you can get as free additions to your browser too.

You can win without supporter but you just have to take a bit more care. The only game that I know of that actually extends the supporter length for the downtime every month. That and the game is also excellent.

Ordered one Monty Python hoodie which was as expected and good quality. No complaints.

Ordered plenty of games to Steam from there as they are cheaper. Has worked flawlessly. The buyer has to take a bit of care to see that the game really is available in Steam and remove the one extra cost purchase protection cost (~1). Other than that no complaints.

My go-to-site for holiday bookings. Good prices, has an impressive barrage of hostels and the sorting by hostel rank has led to many a great finds.

Large margin of pc games piracy in the western countries has been conquered because of Steam. That alone is worth 5/5

Obviously it has a huge catalogue, big community, addictive features. With pc gaming you can never be 100 % sure if the game in question works on your computer. Buying the game through Steam instead of buying a dvd from a shop or a download from some quirky developers website makes it a lot more probable.

Steam sometimes rarely has some problems connecting online, but I've always managed to play the games offline when that occurs.

I've heard that the customer service is not great but you know what. I own over 100 games and i've never needed it. With game and controller problems you can usually turn to community and get the answers there.

I've bought a lot of great stuff from here at a really affordable price. You can usually get 5-10 games for about 6.5$. A lot of them are quality games with price tags a lot higher than the sum you pay for the whole bunch.

Highly recommended especially for students and families who look to try something new, save money and get more for their money. It is also a good idea to use metacritic or similar site to check what kind of reviews the games have gotten and see if they are something you might enjoy.

If only HumbleBundle had existed when i was a kid...

The biggest problem is they removed my businesslike 2/5* review of a product without any notification to me and also removed my right to add a review of that product. This is very unethical. They obviously did not remove my other 5/5* review.

The goods: got my products on time (shipping was long but I knew it would be), prices were excellent. One of the products was faulty but the customer service experience was really swift and got a replacement without the need to send it back (5 cable). However the replacement is faulty in same way (wire does not lock in place in cellphone) but they won't let me submit my review of it.
